William Gladstone once said:” If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you. ” Today tea is one of the most widely used beverages in the world. The origins of Tea were eastern countries like China, India, Korea, Sri-lanka. But soon the tradition of drinking tea spread far and wide. Tea is very good for health and it has medicinal properties.

Tea has high caffeine content which helps as a stress booster. Moreover, herbal teas are often consumed for their physical or medicinal effects, especially for their stimulant, relaxant or sedative properties. Tea has been essential part of many cultures and each culture has adopted different methods of preparing tea and hence some of the names are: Black tea, Green tea, Oolong tea, Pu-erh tea. But in our family we don’t have any particular tea drinking traditions.

Always with pleasure we choose to drink coffee, hot chocolate or even a glass of ice-cold water. Though sometimes there is some willingness to drink a cup of fruity tea from homemade berry jam, which is delicious way to warm the body and refresh the mind. We don’t refuse to have a cup of herbal tea either. From time to time we drink black tea, Melissa tea, and Chai tea. Though gathered fresh, pleasantly odorous herbal leaves and their blossoms from fields are the best ingredients for our tea.

In my opinion tea is more tasteful when you drink it from your loved and cherished cup. That cup as if improves the savor of the tea. I do not like drinking from high and narrow mug. My cup needs to be airy and wide, which gives a great daintiness of the tea. I dislike when my cup does not stand on the plate properly and cup edges are made of thick layer. Cups ear must be also not too small because I do not like to lift the cup holding it with both hands especially when the tea is very hot.

Not very long time ago our family bought a new tea service. Every cup and it’s plate is different shape and size but of the same design. I can choose according to my mood from which cup I want to drink, but as a rule I always opt for wide one because than I can clearly see the colour and smell the wonderful delicate fragrance of the tea which tickles my nose. When I prepare my tea first I put dried tea-leaves in and then pour the boiling water into my cup until tea-leaves soak.

I never drink tea without sugar. Some people say that sugar spoils the real taste of the tea. I say that in my opinion people simply would not drink it without sugar and children would choose to drink hot chocolate or other sweet drink. Sometimes I sweeten my tea with white sugar but normally I prefer brown one with big crystals made from brown sugar canes. When I am sick or I have a very bad cough I drink tea with honey, though it changes the colour, becomes sourish and even turbid.

I use this method of making tea very rely when there is a special occasion but for everyday life I choose an easier way using tea bags, which is much faster and more comfortable for daily use. Its always wonderful to have a cup of tea with the entire family and have a small talk about each one’s life always brings us a closer to each other. Though I don’t like to drink tea but it creates a very miraculous atmosphere. The concept of this small and homely tea party relaxes me a lot.
